UPDATE: James Franco Responds to the Scandal! Watch his response HERE.

Let's just put this out there: James Franco's Instagram page @JamesFrancoTV is kind of creepy. He posts weird memes, photos of himself in his movies and other bizarre-o things. But perhaps the weirdest thing that James has done on the social media network is try to pick up a 17-year-old fan. Ew.

Internet reports are saying that James met Lucy Clode, a 17-year-old fan, when she waited for him outside the theater where he stars in Broadway's Of Mice and Men. James told Lucy to tag him in this Instagram video she posted:

And then, once he had her info, James allegedly went on to direct message the girl, even after he found out that she was underaged. E! has the entire conversation right HERE.
